Hello Families,                    

Welcome to second grade! My name is Sarah Fortner. I received my undergraduate degree from Augsburg College in Minneapolis. I hold a Master's Degree from Saint Mary's University of Minnesota. This will be my 20th year teaching at Oak Grove Elementary. I have spent 19 years teaching second grade and I taught one year of first grade. I am very excited to begin a new school year.

I am a mom to 4 children. Molly, my oldest, is a 10th grader at Kennedy. She loves dance, and is a beautiful ballet/pointe dancer.  Ryan is a 9th grader. He is a sports guy, with baseball being a passion.  Kyle is 12, and is in 6th grade. He loves baseball just like his brother, and is very, very, VERY active.  Audry is 10 and is in 5th grade. She loves anything artsy and creates art out of anything she can get her hands on. She is a self taught seamstress and painter.

I look forward to learning more about your families! Rest assured your child will come home with stories about Fortner kid antics, as I love to share with them :) I love running, essential oils, books, organizing and hanging out with my family and friends (and of course teaching!)

I am looking forward to a wonderful year of learning with your child, please don't hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns.
